Chocolate Strawberry Deluxe

As created by Double Helix mixologist Allison Glenn, $14

“This is a martini for the liquor-loving sweet tooth,” mixologist Allison Glenn says. “It is a seductive trio of Choc-o-Bloc tawny [port], Grand Marnier and  St.-Germain, enveloped by fresh, muddled strawberries and an orange slice. You want another before your first is gone.”

Glenn says this aphrodisiac-laced drink is “passionate love in a glass.”

  • 3 ounces Stanley Lambert Choc-o-Bloc tawny port
  • 1½ ounces Grand Marnier
  • 1 ounce St.-Germain elderflower liqueur
  • ¼ cup fresh strawberries (about four), cleaned and quartered
  • ice
  • strawberry and orange slice for garnish

Combine the port, Grand Marnier and St.-Germain in a cocktail shaker, add strawberries and muddle. Add ice and cover, then shake well. Strain into a martini glass, garnish with fruit and serve.
